Butterfly , I would love to have a meet up someday, some of you I've known for a very long time I hope you enjoy it I bet A will have so many hugs and kisses he won't know what hit him
2have, I just have a good feeling about this surrogate, she seems really sure of what she wants to do and she has a giving nature in general. I still think the best scenario is of you both get pregnant
Garnet, if my RI puts medical tests in anyway IVF related they are not covered so he just bulk bills as normal medical tests. Totally different to your medical stuff but could your doctor just ask for surface markers to get started and see how those come back? The other option is to just test NKC and MTHFR for now?
Jooba, I find it hard to believe Brisbane is having a bad weather day!! we're having a typicalMelbourne weather day it's sunny one minute and showers the next haha!
Well I have news I put on my only pair of still fitting jeans.. Everything fit last week, so I had a pair of boyfriend jeans from Gap which I loved because they were a loose fit. I laid on the sofa while Mark watched Hell on Wheels and had to unbutton them. When I woke up I could not fasten them... Even my leggings are getting tight in the waist I don't want to get maternity pants yet because I'm still so early so I may just go buy bigger leggings just for now. The sonographer said my uterus was already out of my pelvis on Thursday but it's a daily growth now. It's truly amazing, I feel so lucky
I am really looking forward to chatting with everyone and getting to know everyone
We'll hello ladies! I found you (thanks Crystal!).
2have, this is def going to happen for you one way or the other, you're so determined!!
Jooba, you know with all the excitement of positive tests etc I forgot your donor was your friend! Oh and can I just say please don't EVER feel guilty that we cycles together and it worked for you and not for me, that's just the way things go. I was over the moon for you!
Garnet, does this mean you're thinking if having another go? It would be great if you could blag the tests on your insurance. There's no way I can, my insurance doesn't cover any fertility treatment and NHS don't recognise NKC issues because of the lack of scientific trials and evidence.
Crystal those twins are growing! Part of me really hopes if we go again and it works it will be twins. You were Reprofit right? Can I ask what your treatment profile was?
I've been thinking about the tests, I'm def up for NKC Assay, but confused about Thrombotic risk. I've tried searching on this and implantation issues and I can't find anything. I know that for ladies who have had recurrent miscarriages then they think this is linked but I never even get pregnant so what's the link there? It's another £400 so need to know that it's worthwhile doing, that and the fact that I haven't told DH 2have you know all there is to know about immunity, any ideas? x
Great to see you all here! My weekend is allotment, dinner with my nephew and family as he leaves home to go to Unie tomorrow, then Sunday a wedding of some guy DH used to work with, bah humbug, don't know them and don't want to go but have to!! x
I think I can answer your question I had problems getting pregnant with my first two and had to use Clomid. I finally got pregnant and then had issues from the start with blood pressure, then it was blood flow problems to the placenta etc. it was one problem after another. Once I had JD I couldn't get implantation at all until 2012 then out of the blue I had a string of miscarriages. Very strange....
When I first spoke with Dr.Matthias one of my first questions was about my placenta problems and no implantation which is what happens when you have no implantation or no pregnancies. I have MTHFR but there are lots of other issues you can have and what happens is when the fertilised egg tries to implant little tiny blood clots form and prevent the placenta from trying to form. Giving is implantation failure, I'm on 60mgs of Clexane to stop those little clots and allow the placenta to take root and be a good functioning placenta. I stay on 60 mgs until 12 weeks and if blood flow is good I'll drop back to 40 mgs. I also take a low dose aspirin everyday. I've never had lining issues or anything so I have good blood flow it's just when the placenta tries to start growing that I have issues. So you not getting pregnant is a very good indication your problem starts with implantation.
NKC also play a role and your immune system in general, things that are usually red flags are TWW symptoms like sore throat, I get eczema flares, migraines and I never ever get ill.
I really like Reprofit, they like to get he job done and want you to get pregnant. I have a friend that is on her third donor embryo cycle and they gave it to her for free this time. I had 12 eggs 8 fertilised and 4 frozen
Definately try to have the testing done My old IVF clinic when I went kept saying Reproductive Immunolgy was not supported in the medical community but yet they kept telling me I had some sort of immune problem. Today they do test and treat immune issues, it's just a very new area of medicine but it is gaining recognition all the time I sought help because nothing was working, this is my second cycle with Dr.Matthias and while I don't know if I believe all of it I know without it I wouldn't be pregnant hang in there !
I am fully aware of a situation on another support thread and why this thread has been opened however I don't feel trying to move a very supportive thread and creating a divide is the best way to deal with these situations.
